Simon: Bruce managed to clear up the issue that caused all the confusion in an off-line note that I'm going to post my reply to here later. But reading your note forced me to realize where the source of my confusion was. My comments below...

But the way you chose to word that last statement above -- "Since the API returns a pointer to the first parameter" -- made me look at the 'char *Qp0lGetPathFromFileID(' part of the prototype separate from the 'Qp0lGetPathFromFileID(char *,' part. Two different pointers. "Ah ha!" I see! I mean, I knew that from the start, but the implication slipped past me due to the real problem I was having. That's different. Never mind. (And thanks.)
